Let all that you do be done with love.

Holy Spirit, grow me through my journey and reform my inward man.

In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace.
—Ephesians 1:7

Thank You, Jesus, that in You I have redemption, deliverance, and salvation through Your blood—the remission of my sins.
Holy Spirit, thank You for sealing my salvation and that You are rebuilding my relationship with God.
I am guilt-free in accordance with the riches of Your gracious favor, which You have lavished upon me in every kind of wisdom, knowledge, and understanding.
I am free, delivered, and blessed in Christ Jesus.

Day 132
For it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.
—Philippians 2:13

Father, please continue and increase Your presence in me. Every day I learn something new.

Day 133
Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
—Matthew 6:10

Father, this is my prayer for this country (South Africa):
Your kingdom and will be done.
We need a heavenly intervention from You to rebalance justice and righteousness.
The tension can be felt in the atmosphere; yet, there is hope in our hearts for peace and prosperity.
Father, don’t allow hope to fade.

Day 134
The generous soul will be made rich, and he who waters will also be watered himself.
—Proverbs 11:25

Lord, today I take this promise to heart.

Thank You, Jesus.

Jesus, this land is filled with innocent blood; release healing and restore us to the great nation we are meant to be.
Lord, the process for land-grabs without compensation has begun, and fear is filling our hearts. This affects not only farmers, as we know the government corruption and greed will spill over to city homeowners and possibly even businesses.
We need a divine intervention. Lord, release nations to assist the minority groups in holding on to what they have built in this country.
Lord, our government did not look after municipal structures, water supply, and sanitation, leaving this country open for disease-ridden disasters.
Lord, help us rebuild.
Intervene and restore South Africa.

But if anyone loves God, this one is known by Him.
—1 Corinthians 8:3

—Philippians 4:4

—Psalm 45:7

Father, as You have said and done for Your beloved Son, Jesus, do so for us.
Anoint us with the oil of gladness, and let the stronghold of wickedness be broken; let righteousness reign.
Fill us with joy unspeakable.
Let those who are around us and need joy be uplifted by even being in our presence.
Help us to appreciate the moments of humor that uplift us. Let us laugh and be glad and enjoy life.
Make us carriers of the oil of joy!

Day 140
But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.
—2 Corinthians 4:7

Thank You, Jesus, for allowing me to possess the light of the gospel in my frail human vessel so everyone will know that the power in my life comes from You.

—Psalm 104:33–34

Lord, as I sing my song to You today, may it be sweet to Your ears. You wake me up with a morning song in my heart.
Holy Spirit, let new songs of praise and worship flow from me. I truly long to worship You in Spirit and in truth.
Today I want to sing as much in the Spirit as I can. Holy Spirit, as I sing, expand my heavenly language, and may the meditations of my heart and mind be sweet and tender and filled with love for You.

Day 144
“Thus says the Lord to His anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have held— to subdue nations before him and loose the armor of kings, to open before him the double doors, so that the gates will not be shut.
—Isaiah 45:1

Lord, let Your grace shine on me. Remember me and my longing to serve You. You are God, who uses anybody no matter their background for Your purpose.
Restore the anointing upon my life. Restore the calling You have placed on me. Clothe me with righteousness.
Lord, command the gates that are hindering me to move into my destiny to be opened. Lord of Host, remove strongholds and strongmen standing at the gates, blocking me to go through.
Let the doors be opened! Guide me through, and release assisting angels to move in alongside me in order to assist me in the tasks ahead.

Jesus, You are my savior. Jesus, You are my King.

Day 146
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
—Philippians 4:13

Often when we go through extreme circumstances, our first resort is a financial bailout. But inner strength is not a material thing; it is a spiritual thing. And once we understand the spiritual protocol, the manifestation seems less important and fades away as God takes it upon Him how it will work out. Therefore, focus on inner strength that will take you through anything.

I declare that through Christ I have strength and am empowered for all things.
I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him.
With Christ, nothing is impossible.

Day 147
“I will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.”
—2 Corinthians 6:18

With this fatherless generation, the love of the Father can be difficult to grasp. Father, restore our hearts to You; let us grasp and take Your love to heart.
Father, thank You that I can call to You.
Sometimes all I need is that Father’s touch and love to remind me that everything is going to be okay.
Father, be close to me today; I want to feel Your embrace. Lift me up today.

Day 148
He has delivered us form the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in which we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.
—Colossians 1:13–14

Sometimes it is good to reflect on where you came from.
What would your life be if God did not step in? Would you still be alive? Think of the people who prayed with you and who counseled you; whether they are a part of your life today or not does not matter. What matters is that they where there in that season when you needed them sent by God.
Thank You, Lord, for delivering me and drawing me out of the control and dominion of darkness and transferring me into the kingdom of the Son, of Your love, in whom I have redemption through His blood—the forgiveness of my sins.

Day 149
And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful.
—Colossians 3:15

Lord, Your peace is awesome.
No more turmoil and strife. The peace in my home and life is priceless. Thank You for the unity in my marriage that results in peace and prosperity. I am guided by Your peace when I come to a crossroad. And Your Word calls the peacemaker blessed.
Thank You, for Your blessed peace.

Day 150
And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men.
—Colossians 3:23

Supercharge me, Holy Spirit, with passion and power that every work I do, whether for man or God, will be fruitful and enjoyable.
Bless the work of my hands, and may my heart be joyful as I go about my daily tasks.
Thank You, Lord, that I am able to work.

Day 151
And above all things have fervent love for one another, for “love will cover a multitude of sins.”
—1 Peter 4:8

Lord, I can only minister out of love, by the ability that You supply; therefore, Lord, impart love and mercy in my heart today.
Lord, let me see with compassion and mercy; let my eyes be opened to stretch out my hand and impart love as I too received compassion, mercy, and love from You and others. Freely I have received; freely I will give love and compassion.
Thank You for Your unconditional love.

Day 152
But by the God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all, yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.
—1 Corinthians 15:10

Lord, thank You for the honor to labor with You.
It is by You that I am who I am today; Your grace has made me fruitful and effective. Your grace has touched my conscience, my understanding, and my will to do Your will. I am changed forever.
Father, as Your word is spoken through me, I ask that You would breathe upon the word and make it alive. Also, Father, I ask that You would release Your ministering angels to minister to Your people as they hear the word. In Jesus’s name, amen.

Day 153
And you became followers of us and of the Lord, having received the word in much affliction, with joy in the Holy Spirit.
—1 Thessalonians 1:6

Lord, help me to lead by example how to be Your follower with the power of the Holy Spirit.
Holy Spirit, how I desire more of You. I want that “closer than a brother” relationship with You.
Release a spirit of boldness in me to speak passionately about my God to the extent that the hearers would want the same or a better relationship with my Lord.
Holy Spirit, teach me as I want to share in Your joy.

Day 154
That you would walk worthy of God who calls you into His own kingdom and glory.
—1 Thessalonians 2:12

This world has a way to make me feel unworthy, Lord. At times like these, remind me that You have called me into a kingdom far superior to this world.
Help me to walk worthy and with purpose; may my every step spread Your glory.
My feet are Yours.

Day 155
For you are our glory and joy.
—1 Thessalonians 2:20

Lord, this sums up what I desire for You to see when You look at me: Your glory and joy. Like a child, I also want You to be proud of Your child.
May I fill Your heart with joy.

Day 156
Therefore comfort each other and edify one another, just as you also are doing.
—1 Thessalonians 5:11

Lord, use me as a vessel that brings comfort and edification wherever I go.
Holy Spirit, give me the right words for the right time in order to build and strengthen.
Release words that inspire and produce fruit.
Align my words with Your desire for the hearers.

Day 157
For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.
—Romans 10:4

Thank You, Jesus, for fulfilling the purpose of the Law in order to save all so that I can be in right relationship with God even as a gentile, as I put my trust in You.
Thank You for a new beginning and an eternal heavenly residency.

Day 158
Yet for us there is one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we for Him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and through whom we live.
—1 Corinthians 8:6

God, my only God, You are the source of all things, and I am living for You.
You have given me the ability to ask questions of conscience about the choices I make—an inward checking of if my motivation is based in love.
I have been adopted as Your child, and You have given me a royal standing in Your kingdom.
When You look at me, You see much more than I can imagine. Guide me to be all You desire for me.
I declare that Jesus Christ is the only Lord.
Through Him and by Him, all things exist, including me.

Day 159
Keep your tongue from evil, and your lips from speaking deceit.
—Psalm 34:13

Lord, forgive me for partaking in gossip in the past. Holy Spirit, make me attentive to not gossip or stand with gossipers, as that brings nothing but deceit and anger to the victim of gossip.
Lord, let me not be guilty of this evil again.
May my speech bring healing and encouragement. May the words from my mouth inspire.

Day 160
For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich.
—2 Corinthians 8:9

Thank You, Lord Jesus. Through Your life-giving grace, I have more than I understand and deserve.
My soul rejoices in Your riches and blessings transferred to me. Lord, You know what I will need and where I will face challenges. In Your name, the provision will be available in advance.
Lord, manifest those spiritual and financial riches in my life and in my loved ones.
Let Your abundance and goodness enrich my life and overflow to the lives of others.
Thank You for Your faithfulness.

Day 161

“And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.”
—Revelation 10:11

Today I want you to consider and meditate on:
God’s plan includes to save as many from destruction as possible. He still has an overwhelming desire to save all He can.
The release of fresh prophecy and fresh revelation is for a much bigger purpose than we realize. No longer should we run after feel-good prophetic word to make us feel good for a moment.
No! The picture is much bigger than that, and it is time to desire more than just the feel-good word for the moment. You see, nations need saving.
You might have a word for a nation; our church walls need to come down.
The nations are waiting! Our mission now, more than ever, is to prepare the way of the Lord.
Day 162
To speak evil of no one, to be peaceable, gentle, showing all humility to all men.
—Titus 3:2

Lord, this verse is so much bigger than I am. Lord, without You, it would be humanly impossible.
Lord, take control of what comes out of my mouth and through my writings. May my words be gentle and caring.
Lord, use my mouth to utter words that build. Let the words I write echo beyond what I imagine. Remove boundaries and give my words wings to fly, reaching places I could never go.
Help me to serve humbly, for the glory belongs to You.

Day 163
And let our people also learn to maintain good works, to meet urgent needs, that they may not be unfruitful.
—Titus 3:14

Lord, today I ask that You would give me endurance to continue in my quest to do good to others. Help me to be able to meet urgent needs and bear good fruits.
Regarding work, I ask that I will be able to keep the pace in order to complete tasks per set deadlines. I need to maintain my focus and live a balanced and fruitful lifestyle.

Day 164
Therefore, brethren, desire earnestly to prophesy, and do not forbid to speak with tongues.
—1 Corinthians 14:39

Holy Spirit, thank You for my heavenly tongue.
With my gifted tongue I can build myself up, but my desire is for so much more.
Holy Spirit, release a fresh wave of the prophetic gift over me. Use me as a voice that brings hope to the hopeless. Reveal God’s will for His people.
I desire to build others up, encourage, inspire, strengthen, and uplift through the gift of prophecy.
Holy Spirit, use my mouth and writings to glorify God.

Day 165
For the kingdom of God is not in word but in power.
—1 Corinthians 4:20

Lord, help me to be kingdom-minded and live my life by demonstration of Your power.
Holy Spirit, flow in me and flow through me.
Alter my mind-set to be one with Yours.

Day 166
Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own.
—1 Corinthians 6:19

Thank You, Lord, for living within me by the Holy Spirit. I am Yours, bought at a price.
Looking after my body is my responsibility; I must maintain my body to be effective for as long as possible. Nourishing my spirit is also my responsibility; it is up to me what enters my body and spirit.
May my life, body, spirit, and soul honor and glorify You. I realize I need to take care of my body so that I can impact those around me as long as possible. Keep my mind healthy and sharp.
Use me to advance Your kingdom on earth.
I am Yours, in body, in spirit, and in soul.

Day 167
Finding out what is acceptable to the Lord.
—Ephesians 5:10

Holy Spirit, today I ask that You would reveal to me what is uniquely acceptable to the Lord for me.
Guide my doings to be pleasing by living in love, by forsaking selfish pursuits, by watching what I say, by exercising discernment over that which enters my hearing, by walking away from evil agendas, and by managing my time effectively.
Teach me, Lord; I am willing to learn more.

Day 168
Do not quench the Spirit.
—1 Thessalonians 5:19

Holy Spirit, no limit! Move in me and through me. Holy Spirit, breathe new life in me and empower me as Your vessel.
Teach and guide me. Holy Spirit, open my spirit to receive and understand. Remove from me fear of man and their opinion and open my mind to perceive Your guidance.

Day 169
I have shown you in every way, by labouring like this, that you must support the weak. And remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”
—Acts 20:35

Lord, You worked and served while walking the earth. You had no “superiority complex,” unlike today’s preachers and prophets. The church has become a family business and a circle for the elite, while the orphans and poor are neglected, and now the concern of organizations other than the church.
Lord, make me attentive to those who are regarded as weak; open my heart to see their hurt and needs and to be a support to their emotional well-being.
Fatherless. Single parent. Elderly. Lonely person. Even animal welfare. Lord, the list and needs are endless. Press on my heart where I can be an extended hand. For the new church is within me, not bound by what goes on between walls.
Open my eyes to see needs where I have influence and access to be a helping hand to those in need.
Day 170
A righteous man regards the life of his animal, but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel.
—Proverbs 12:10

Lord, all life is sacred. You have entrusted us to watch over and look after all of creation.
Lord, fill our hearts with compassion for all life, especially the helpless animals.
Lord, they suffer the most at the cruel hand of humans. Some sacrifice their blood to do evil.
Holy Spirit, stir even the hearts of the wicked to not lift their hand in hurting the animals.

Day 171
But you shall not eat flesh with its life, that is, its blood. Surely for your lifeblood I will demand a reckoning; from the hand of every beast I will require it, and from the hand of man.
—Genesis 9:4–5a

Lord, today I consider how the ones who worship the devil grasp the importance of the life that is in blood, and by slaughtering innocent animals and even humans, they are mocking You in the cruelest way.
They mock the God of creation!
For we are custodians of Your creation, and You are holding us accountable. O, how we are failing at this task. Give us courage to speak up against cruelty. Animals go extinct daily.
Lord, the trophy hunters that hunt for fun also come to mind. Guide my thoughts and prayer today, as this issue is gripping my heart today.

Day 172
Be not among winebibbers; among riotous eaters of flesh.
—Proverbs 23:20 KJV

Flesh = according to the Hebrew:
flesh (of men or animals); body; living creature; man, mankind; blood relation; skin.
The essential meaning refers to animal musculature, and the meaning was extended to the human body, blood relations, the human race, living things, life itself, and created life as opposed to God.
Lord, though You do allow us to eat meat off animals, forgive us when we waste and when we eat more than needed, as that life is for our strength but is also precious and not to be wasted.

Day 173
Everyone who is called by my name, whom I have created for My glory, I have formed him, yes, I have made him.’
—Isaiah 43:7

Created for Your glory, Lord, guide me to my life purpose.
Father, thank You for the gifts that came with me from birth and the ability to attain knowledge if I choose so.
You have placed within me many talents and abilities; thank You, Father.
Holy Spirit, teach and guide me; help me to evolve and adapt to Your call and not stagnate, as I reflect Your glory, God.

Day 174
Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by faith in Christ and not the works of the law; for by the works of the law no flesh shall be justified.
—Galatians 2:16

I cannot work for or boast in my salvation. Jesus, You paid the ultimate price for me!
I am not made righteous and justified by the law but through my faith in Jesus Christ.
Thank You, Lord, that You removed that burden of proving my worth by working for my salvation, as it is humanly impossible not to stumble at some point.
Even if I was born a Jew, maintaining my salvation with works would prove itself impossible; no one can apply all the rules and stand guilt-free.
Therefore, my outwork flows from my gratitude to Jesus, for saving me.

Day 175
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
—Philemon 3

Lord, You have blessed me with Your grace and peace; thank You.
I am anchored in grace and peace. Lord, let me too give grace and show mercy to those around me.
Father of the fatherless, Father of all, let me rest in Your loving arms. You are my peace.
I love You, Father.

Day 176
But let justice run down like water, and righteousness like a mighty stream.
—Amos 5:24

Lord, intercede with me for South Africa, as her great Intercessor.
Let justice run down her like water, cleansing and healing the land and hearts of the people; let righteousness be restored to her. It is time for her to rise.
Save and heal South Africa.

Day 177
Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever.
—Daniel 12: 3

No more compromising; it is time to reflect the glory of the Lord and shine bright. Let my love be the force that draws people to You.
Lord, You know my personality, my flaws, and my rights. Yet I desire to shine my light for You forever.
Lord, give me a platform where I can be used by You, whether it is public speaking, through social media, or maybe writing. Make my platform plain to me, and may I shine like a star.

Day 178
That Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love.
—Ephesians 3:17

Lord, I invite You to take root in my heart; keep me grounded in Your love. Make Yourself a home within my heart.
You are worthy to be loved, adored, and appreciated.
Consume me in Your love. Ignite love within me that would reflect Your love and ultimately draw others to want to know You.
Without love, there is no life.

Day 179
Even so then, at this present time there is a remnant according to the election of grace.
— Romans 11:5

It is time for you to come out from your cave and speak the heart of God. Find any means possible to declare your message; this is a media era and is yours for the taking.
Lifting your voice to a congregation is not enough; the world needs to hear what God has to say.
The walls that kept you caved in are coming down.
Today as you cry out to God, ask him to give you a plan and a means to lift your voice to declare Him and glorify Him to the ends of the earth.
And take courage; you are not alone. The prophets who were hidden for this time are rising up one by one and finding their trumpets.

Day 180
The grass withers, the flowers fades, but the word of our God stands forever.”
—Isaiah 40:8

Seasons come and go; the world changes rapidly, and even hearts turn to and from each other; yet, You, Lord God, stand faithfully with me.
Stability in our lives is something we all want, yet it is the opposite of what a fast-paced life offers.
Lord, anchor me through Your word.
Thank You that the word You have spoken over me will stand no matter how things appear.

Day 181
I know that whatever God does, it shall be forever. Nothing can be added to it. And nothing can be taken from it. God does it, that men should fear before Him.
—Ecclesiastes 3:14

Bless Your holy name, God of eternity. You hold the world in Your hands, and Your power has no limit. Nothing escapes You. You are the keeper of time and seasons.
Thank You, Lord, that I have this assurance: whatever You determine concerning me cannot be altered. Every word spoken over me will come into existence.
No plan to derail me or speak against me will be successful, as You are the keeper of my destiny.
Therefore, Lord, restore all to me and my family that has been taken from us by violence and force.
Redeem us in this day.

Day 182
Blessed is the man who makes the Lord his trust, and does not respect the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.
—Psalm 40:4

Lord, most people follow the “next big thing,” the fashionable person of the moment, without considering the unstable ground they have placed their hearts to trust.
Many think that their social media stand will guarantee their crave for fame. May I say that my fame is in Christ. #Jesus forever!
Lord, You are my trust, my save place, my confidence; You surround me with a few faithful ones, and that is all I need.

Day 183
And you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.
—Colossians 2:10

Lord, God almighty, I acknowledge that in You I am complete.
My whole being cries out to You; without You I feel lost.
Thank You for Your power that strengthens and enables me to stand strong no matter what.
Therefore, no power coming against me will succeed.
I am covered in Your righteousness.

Day 184
That the sharing of your faith may become effective by the acknowledgement of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.
—Philemon 6

My focus is on Jesus.
I want to know You more. The more I know You, the more I can share what You mean to me. You called me out of utter darkness and depression and gave me life.
Father, I pray that the sharing of my faith may produce full understanding and appreciation of every good thing that is mine in Christ Jesus.

Day 185
But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.
—James 1:22

Lord, let Your word effortlessly overflow in my daily living.
Being a helping hand should be second nature, but trusting people has caused hurt and made me hesitant to give from my overflow.
Help me to forgive and trust again.
Strengthen my heart and hands to be open in loving and giving.
I am thankful for all I have received and want to be a continuation of the blessings You so freely give.

Day 186
There is one Lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy. Who are you to judge another?
—James 4:12

Lord, forgive me where I have spoken judgmentally over another without knowing what they might be going through or what life lessons they are learning.
Lord, change the way we look at each other. There are so many broken people who go through unthinkable situations. May we be hope-bearers to those and see their future rather than judging their current state.
Let us see through Your eyes the challenges and struggles people face daily.

Day 187
You were bought at a price; do not become slaves of men.
—1 Corinthians 7:23

Lord Jesus, thank You for my freedom.
Today I realize that where the “church” might have rejected or misunderstood that my willingness to serve was actually to my freedom, therefore I will never again be bound by the constitution of religion, as I am limitless in my giving without man-made borders.
I am free to serve freely, inspired by the Holy Spirit.

Day 188
That good thing which was committed to you, keep by the Holy Spirit who dwells in us.
—2 Timothy 1:14

Let me never take for granted the gifts imparted to me by the Holy Spirit.
Help me, Lord, to guard and keep with greatest care the precious truth and giftings that have been entrusted to me by the Holy Spirit.
Some things given are sacred between us, and when we share those moments with others they won’t understand or may even breed envy.
Enhance my sensitivity to what is just between You and me.

Day 189
That He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man.
—Ephesians 3:16

Father, thank You for strengthening me with might and power in my inner man by Your Holy Spirit.
Holy Spirit, one lesson You taught me early was: “let your yes be yes and your no be no.”
Our words spoken have tremendous power and should not be taken for granted or taken lightly.
You give me courage to go and speak to people I would not go to on my own. Holy Spirit, help me express the grace of God.
Jesus, Your permanent home is within my heart. I truly believe this, and it is by You that I can stay rooted and grounded and tapped-in, in Your love.
The love You showed to me is so awesome that I want to reflect and be consumed by Your love.

Day 190
You therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.
—2 Timothy 2:1

Lord, today I ask that You would strengthen me; at times I feel weak and emotionally fragile.
I need a zest of energy to recharge this tired body and mind. Lord, recharge me inwardly in the grace and spiritual blessings that are found only in Christ Jesus.
My strength comes from You; Lord, impart what I need for today.

Day 191
The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.
—2 Peter 3:9

Lord, thank You for Your patience toward us.
Thank You that every promise You have for us will come to fulfillment at the right time.
There are promises I have pending that have not been fulfilled as yet; Lord, show me what my part to play is in order for those promises to manifest.
Place in us that same hopefulness You have not to give up on our loved ones. Some family members have not come to You yet; I ask that You would intercede with me for their souls.
Help us to be patient and merciful to each other; help us to understand their suffering, and give us the right comforting words to those who need comforting, at the right time.

Day 192
Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God!
—1 John 3:1a

To be accepted and having a place where we belong must be one of the deepest human desires.
I remember a time where my deepest desire was to be loved just as I am. I have found that desire in You, Jesus.
And then You, Father, announced for all to hear how much You love me. I am proudly Your Child.
Your love for me gives my longing rest.
Thank You for accepting and loving me just as I am.

Day 193

My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth.
—1 John 3:18

Lord, I know how it feels to be betrayed and misled by someone’s word.
There was a time in my life when a person’s word was all I had to look forward to, and when they forget or change their mind, it is devastating.
That taught me what I do not want to be.
I will not be hasty with my promises; I want to love like You do, by serving and taking care of others by being truthful to my word.

Day 194
Then they laid hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit.
—Acts 8:17

Lord, You know who will cross my path today.
You know them inside out; You know the deep, hidden issues that speak silently from their hearts.
Holy Spirit, as we meet them, seek out their needs and use me to impart what they need just by my touch.
Your gentle touch is all they need.

Day 195
In whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
—Colossians 2:3

Thank You, Jesus, that all the treasures of divine wisdom and insight into the ways and purposes of God are stored and hidden in You.
I ask today that You would impart to me the wisdom and insight found in only You. I am open to receive teaching from You.
Where knowledge in certain issues is needed, I ask that that knowledge will flow from me naturally.
As I learn, let me teach.

Day 196
Rooted and build up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving.
—Colossians 2:7

Lord, may the roots of my being be firmly and deeply planted in You. Saturate me in Your unfailing love. Cover me in Your Love.
May the same love You have for me overflow and touch the hearts of every unbeliever I meet. Change their hearts and minds as they meet love—the love that You are.
Thank You for Your continual building up of my faith so that I can become established.
Thank You for never giving up on me.

Day 197
In the third year of Cyrus king of Persia a message was revealed to Daniel, whose name was called Belteshazzar. The message was true, but the appointed time was long; and he understood the message, and had understanding of the vision.
—Daniel 10:1

Holy Spirit, I ask that You would give me clear understanding of times and seasons.
Word that is for now, in the times we are living in now, as we face more challenges now than ever.
Give me an urgency to deliver a word when the time is right. Timing is everything. You know the timing of every person; we can only guess. But You know.
Holy Spirit, I ask that You would give me the interpretation of dreams and visions like You did Daniel. May my dreams be clear and the interpretation to the point. Help me guide others in interpreting their own dreams.
Make my dreams plain so that there can be no confusion.
Day 198
And in all matters of wisdom and understanding about which the king examined them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and astrologers who were in all his realm.
—Daniel 1:20

Lord, by Your favor I am where I am. Set me up to influence and be a person of influence.
Lord, there are really better-qualified people competing with me in so many spheres of life.
I need godly wisdom and understanding. I need foresight to plan for future events.
Lord, let Your favor shine on me so that, like Daniel, I will come across ten times better equipped than my competitors.
Take me places I never thought possible. And readjust the way I see things. Open the understanding of the prophetic.

Day 199
And he said, “O man greatly beloved, fear not! Peace be to you; be strong, yes, be strong!” So when he spoke to me I was strengthened, and said, “Let my lord speak, for you have strengthened me.”
—Daniel 10:19

Lord, strengthen me as I take my stand socially and spiritually. The world has no second to waste in criticizing each other.
Protect my heart from wrongful critique. Where critique is justified, let me learn from it and readjust in order to better the next opportunity I have to produce fruit.
Lord, when You speak, calm my spirit so that I can calmly grasp all You want to convey to and through me. Fine-tune me to hear clearly and accurately so no doubt can take root.
I can only move forward if You are with me, as I find my courage and strength in You.
Thank You for always being with me.

Day 200
Surely the Lord God does nothing, unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets.
—Amos 3:7

Lord, reveal to me the things concerning my life and time—even further than that, my community and even this country and the nations.
Show me secrets and revelations through dreams. Help me to discern the times and the Word You entrust to me. Give and establish a platform for me to communicate Your desires and plans.
Help me to apply and translate the prophetic Word in a practical manner for all to understand.

Day 201
For he was a good man, full of the Holy Spirit and of faith. And a great many people were added to the Lord.
—Acts 11:24

Lord, may this too be my lasting legacy: a good person, full of the Holy Spirit and of faith.
May many become Yours through my lifetime by the platforms You give me. May I impact and make a difference in this world.
And may even the smallest attempt to uplift and encourage someone make a huge difference.

Day 202
Now the God of peace be with You all. Amen.
—Romans 15:33

Thank You, Lord, for Your peace. Your peace strengthens and grounds me.
No matter what I go through, I can make it, as I am guided by Your peace.
Let Your peace saturate every aspect of my life today.

Day 203
Glory in His holy name; let the hearts of those rejoice who seek the Lord!
—Psalm 105:3

Lord, I love Your presence. You are the King of my heart. You are awesome. You are glorious. You are holy. You are wonderful; oh, how great You are.
I want more of You, Lord; let me share in Your joy. Here I am; fill me with Your plans and dreams, Your hopes and visions.
Fill me with more of You.

Day 204
‘I will go before you and make the crooked places straight; I will break in pieces the gates of bronze and cut the bars of iron.
—Isaiah 45:2

You see the unseen and know the unknown. Along our life journey we befall many challenges, and our enemy would love to derail us permanently!
Lord, my path has always been a difficult one. Everything does indeed come with a price, but I am excited to continue and see the victorious outcome.
Lord, I cannot continue on my journey to the next level without You stepping in and helping me.
Lord, straighten the crooked places and break all obstacles to those gates stopping me from going through.
By faith I step into my promised land.

Day 205
I give you the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places, they you may know that I, the Lord, who call you by name, Am the God of Israel.
—Isaiah 45:3

Lord, open my understanding to see Your provision from unexpected, unusual places.
Broaden my vision and expectancy.
Open the treasure chest of the hidden riches, and open new technologies buried in darkness and secret places.
Give me access to these funds and technology as Your plan unfolds for us in this time frame.
Save Your people; give us the edge to excel and succeed.
Poverty is not our portion. We are destined to reign.

Day 206
The Lord will open to you His good treasure, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in this season, and to bless all the work of your hand. You shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow.
—Deuteronomy 28:12

Lord, pour out Your good treasure over me and my loved ones. Bless us with rain that makes rich, and prosper even in this season of instability in our land.
Bless the work of our hands so that we can bless those in need.
Open the heavens over our harvest, and bless the fruit our lands produce. Fill our bellies with the goodness of the land. Bless the farmers and protect them in these difficult times.
I declare that I am debt free and positioned to relieve the debt of others. Let Your richness pave the way for us to the nations. Thank You, Jesus.
Great is Your faithfulness.

Day 207
Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand.
—Philippians 4:5

Lord, in this country the opposite is true; we are a violent, aggressive people. Stir our spirits to be calm and gentle. Pour out Your love over this nation.
Lord, make our words gentle; help as to speak and answer in a gentle tone, as if You speak through us.

Day 208
For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation.
—Ephesians 2:14

Jesus, Prince of Peace, Your peace in me gives me access to freely enter the courts of heaven.
Thank You for tearing down the veil of separation. Lord, today I petition on behalf of myself and my family. I petition on behalf of South Africa.
Restore to us that which we have lost through deceit and unjust dealings from others. Restore relationships. Restore us to the nations. Restore our peace.
Restore positions lost, and restore health.

Day 209

Now the Lord came and stood and called as at other times, “Samuel! Samuel!”
—1 Samuel 3:10

Lord, awaken my hearing. Let me be quick to respond to Your call. Clear my mind of all the clutter, and restore my focus.
Renew and fine-tune my hearing to be precise. Enhance my ability to see and hear beyond this realm and be attentive to detail.
I don’t want to miss You calling and talking to me. Open my ears to hear clearly and accurately.

Day 210
Then Jesus, moved with compassion, stretched out His hand and touched him, and said to him, “I am willing; be cleansed.”
—Mark 1:41

Lord, what this world needs are people willing to have their hearts moved with compassion.
The reality of this world is hardness of hearts, filth, violence, deceit, lawlessness, and hatred.
Holy Spirit, release a spirit of compassion over God’s own that will cause them to reach out and be conductors for health, of love and restoration to all that God desires for those who need it.
Let us pray for one another.

Day 211
And He opened their understanding, that they might comprehend the Scriptures.
—Luke 24:45

Lord, You are the Word of God made flesh.
There is so much for us to know and understand.
You understand all of the Word; therefore, I ask that You would open my mind to a sevenfold understanding of the Word.
Reveal Your Word to me in a brand-new way. And bring back that excitement I used to experience when I understood what You were saying to me.
Take my mind and fill it to the capacity that is perfect for me.

Day 212
“It shall come to pass that before they call, I will answer, and while they are still speaking, I will hear.
—Isaiah 65:24

Lord, hear my every spoken word. May it be like a continual prayer or call to You.
Lord, manifest Your breakthrough and needed answers to me even as I ponder about concerns in my mind. May Your light shine on me favorably always.
Thank You for hearing even before we call.

Day 213
For You, o Lord, will bless the righteous; with favour You will surround him as with a shield.
—Psalm 5:12

Jesus, I am made righteous in You; therefore, I am blessed. Your favor surrounds me like a shield. Let favor pave the way and open the doors to my blessings and destiny.
Your favor protects me from harm and keeps me on the right track.
Use the favor upon my life to favor and bless those around me.
Use me as a giver of dreams.

Day 214
Ask of Me, and I will give You the nations for Your inheritance, and the ends of the earth for Your possession.
—Psalm 2:8

Father, as joint heir in Christ, I ask today that the boundaries to my earthly inheritance be lifted.
Holy Spirit, bless me with a gift I can share with the word and glorify God. Take me beyond our borders, and use me as an inspiration to the nations.
Let me rule as You have purposed in my destiny.
Thank You for Your gift within me that will enable me to leave a legacy to the world.

Day 215
Saying with a loud voice: “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom, and strength and honour and glory and blessing!’
—Revelation 5:12

Do you have the Son? Then these gifts belong to you as well, not only in heaven but now! Only these gifts are to be valued and handled with care; they are for those who live to establish and bring the Kingdom of God.
These gifts come with great responsibility; the true sons and daughters of God can access them and give them freely as they tap into heaven to hear what God would like them to do throughout the nations.
God’s agenda is still love—love to gather the lost and save them from eternal condemnation. These gifts are to others through you, but your reward for being found faithful is summed up in the word worthy. By God’s grace when you are found worthy, these too belong to you and through you.

Majesty, You are worthy; all power, riches, wisdom, strength, honor, glory, and blessing belong to You.
You are in me, and, I am in You; therefore, these things are also my inheritance.
Thank You, Jesus. You thought of it all; there is no end to Your royal descent.
I reign in and through You.

Day 216
“No one is holy like the Lord, for there is none besides You, nor is there any rock like our God.
—1 Samuel 2:2

Lord, I declare that there is none as holy as You are holy; there is no god besides You; there is no rock in my life like You.
You are my hiding place, and I am safe in Your arms. In You I can rest.
You are King of kings and Lord of lords.
Blessed be Your name forever.

Day 217
The Lord repay your work, and a full reward be given you by the Lord God of Israel, under whose wings you have come for refuge.”
—Ruth 2:12

Lord, I have learned that under Your wings are divine protection and shelter. There is favor to flourish and prosper. There is healing and deliverance.
Shelter us from harm. Thank You for always taking care of our needs and blessing our work.
Thank You for a wonderful, faithful, and loving husband. Thank You for my children; keep them safely in Your loving arms.

Day 218
There is no fear in love; but perfect love cast out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.
—1 John 4:18

Fear and torment are not from God.
Lord, let me never forget that there is no fear in love.
When I am in a situation where I feel manipulated and fearful, let these words jump in remembrance as a warning to back off.
Let Your peace guide me always.

Day 219

“You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power; for You created all things, and by Your will they exist and were created.”
—Revelation 4:11

Lord, You are worthy to receive glory and honor and dominion; Your creation is marvelous and awe inspiring.
There is such beauty and splendor on the earth that it takes Your breath away in wonder. If earth possesses such beauty, how much more our heavenly resting place …
There are not enough words to express Your greatness.
I exist by You and for You.

Day 220
Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” and He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.”
—Revelation 21:5

Lord, I will never be the same; You have taught me and molded me into a new being.
When I look back, I can see how faithful and true these words are; everything around me has gone through a transformation.
All things are new.
I am happy and blessed; I am at peace.
Thank You for Your truth and faithfulness and for revealing nuggets of truth to me.

Day 221

And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not.
—Revelation 10:4

This seal was set in place by God in order to protect the end-time believers. Too much revelation at the wrong time will result in chaos and fear. The plan of action will be set in place at the exact right time, and by then our preparation will be complete, and the army of God will be fearless. If you are gifted with foresight like Joseph was, apply the plan. Joseph built storehouses that saved nations.
The prophetic revelation that is about to be released contains the secret designs and plans God has put in place for the right time.
It is my belief that as you are reading this, there are people with dreams and revelations of a plan of action and what their role is to play in preparation for what is to come.
Day 222
And all nations shall call you blessed, for you will be a delightful land, says the Lord of hosts.
—Malachi 3:12

Father, this is my desire for myself, my family, and our nation that indeed we will be called blessed and a delight.
Father, remove the thug mentality that is ruling over (South-Africa), and consume the offspring this mentality produced with the Fire of God, that no trace of it will remain to torment Your people again.
Fill us with hope, joy, and peace, and let the Holy Spirit breathe healing over this nation. In Jesus’s name.
